(The iPhone is epic. Definitely deserved to win.)
I know nothing of the Zune - is it really that bad?!
i like the editors choice of worst gadget of the year..
I dont think it is a BAD device, but it did not live up to the hype that surrounded it. I thought blackberry would have come out with a better device.
this attitude is not helping them:
not that the iphone has any fewer bugs, i dont know how many more times i can upgrade to make safari feel snappier
According to whom? Link please!
You forgot something OP
Nah. I think people are just disappointed that it's not an iPod MURDERER, more than anything.
Zune's are cool.My brother had one. I just prefer the clickwheel on my ipod.
Heres the link.
Best cell phone of the year.....lg Vu? All of the other ones seem legit and deserving except for that one.
iphone 3g with 2 awards. Nice.
EDIT: the lg Vu was voted by viewers, the instinct was voted as best cell phone by the editors....that makes more sense.
Boooo...The voters were mostly Apple fanboys. I agree with the iPhone winning best gadget, but not best smartphone (that should've went to the G1 and Android). But Zune 3.0 getting worst gadget? How does that make sense? The only thing people don't like about it is the fact that it's a Microsoft product. Sure, it's ugly and not very compatible but so are many other products (and many are worse that the Zune). I think that the Blackberry Storm deserved "worst gadget".
True but M$ really needs to open up zune and make it more internet friendly like the touch. Some of the things M$ do make no sense...
well i think thats why we may see zune as hardware disapper and have it transition into a part of windows mobile.
Seems crazy that the Zune is STILL not officially available outside the USA ... Did MS never want the device to take off or get some global presence?
You mean Engadget named an Apple product the best of the year? And a non-Apple product not? I am SHOCKED!
HAHAHA!! Whooooooot! I hate Zune!
Some of the things.. Try everything except Windows 7.
But congrats Apple on all the wins! Nice.
And a lot of what Apple does makes no sense.
The click wheel is difficult to use. When I first used the iPod click wheel, it was easy. I used a friend's zune to try to pick a song. Dear jeebus, the thing was un-intuitive. Oh, and I never was able to pick the song. My friend had to pick it.
Aside from Google making Android and the OS being open source, what is so great about the G1? Heck, I'm not even saying those reasons are good, but that's all I know about the G1 because NOBODY (that I know) has one. It seems to be the wet dream of uber nerds but a wet fart to the rest of us.
What are you talking about? I can go down to any electronics store and pick up a Zune here in Toronto.
And as for the Engadget Awards, the Readers' Choice especially are a load of crock. Too many Apple fanboys on there. Even the staff has too many Apple fanboys. I don't even think the iPhone 3G is deserving of "gadget of the year" - it's just what we saw in 2007 except faster and more apps. It still lacks the functionality of a true smartphone.
None of the Apple products deserve to be up there, IMHO. There was no innovation from Apple this year around; they just kept milking the same teat.
Good on ya' iPhone. Yeah, I know of one person with a Zune and after the fiasco last year, they've jumped ship and picked up a new iPod Touch 32GB.....
2008 was more of a big year for the MacBooks, but I have a feeling this summer will be huge for the iPhone.
I think the problem with Zune is that MS is living in the past. It's an iPod when we've all moved on to iPod Touches and iPhones.
If Apple somehow managed to swing an FM transmitter (not sure if someone made an app), then there is no advantage of owning a Zune other than if you're anti-Apple.
MS needs to learn from Google what Apple quickly learned. That if you keep everything closed up and at a fee for extras...then you lose. When you open up and create a platform for others to build on, then you win. Open source is the future, and even Apple was reluctant on it until Android popped up.
Look where Apple is now that they opened the SDK and even went further to get people to make apps for their device.
If Mr Gates wants to keep up then he doesn't even need to make a Zune Phone, but he does need to think about more making Windows Mobile a platform to build upon for users. I imagine there are millions of sofrware developers out there that would love to be able to easily build Apps for Windows Moble devices just as much as they want to build for Apple and Android.
